Looking for something new to read, but not sure where to start? Let one of our librarians compile a list of three books based on your preferences. We can suggest almost any author/genre in the format you prefer, such as book, eBook, large print or audiobook. Selections will be based on what is available in our collections. To get some recommendations, stop by the Reference Desk or give us a call at (856) 667-0300 option 2.
You can browse our online reading lists on our “What Should I Read Next?” page.

Book Clubs to Go
Book Clubs to Go is a service ideal for local book clubs where one member may check out a bag of 10 to 12 of the same paperback book to share with other members of their club. Each bag can be checked out for six weeks and includes the books, a brief biography of the author and a list of discussion questions. The library currently has over 40 Book Clubs To Go titles to choose from. Contact our Reference Department to reserve a bag today.
